The aim is to purify the process, going back to the intrinsic design of things.
Playing is, among other actions, essential to the nature of humans and certain more developed animals. As an intrinsically motivated activity it leads to pleasure but also development of the mind.
When it is structured and goal-oriented, we use it to teach children and make them understand our adult ways.
But play is the first action that guides our body for hand-eye coordination and thus paves the way towards drawing, painting, assembly - creativity.
We start by playing with simple shapes and forms, tangle them around the body, mimic a garment. After a time, play comes up with a resolution, aesthetically appealing and different depending on the angle you wish to see it.
The creative adult is the child who survived.
